L.A. Noire takes three Xbox 360 discs to hold everything

Shooter Xbox 360 Rockstar Puzzle News Playstation 3 Action

Rockstar’s upcoming L.A Noire release is so epic in size that they literally could not fit the game on one DVD. They couldn’t even fit it on two of them. Instead they had to use three discs for their upcoming release on the Xbox 360. The Blu-Ray version of the game will only take one disc however for the PS3. But that almost wasnt’ enough says ROckstar’s Jeronimo Barrera to Kotaku.

“To tell the story and make the game we wanted to make, we knew that it was going to take an entire single layer Blu-ray disc and three Xbox discs. Since the game is built around the concept of progressing through individual cases from desk to desk, players on Xbox will find disc-swapping is hassle-free.”

Swapping discs really isn’t a major problem though some people find disc swapping to be a thing of hatred. Maybe these gamers never played an old PC game that took eight different floppies to play that had to be swapped out regularly. Either way though if you don’t like to swap discs then you should buy the PS3 version, but if it doesn’t bother you then you can take your pick.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
  • unlucky Xoxers, not a major hassle but shows how much of a difference there is in the tech in each console, this wont be the last game that this happens too, by the end of these consoles life I can imagine more and more xbox games will need to use more than 1 disc as the tech of the ps3 gets more and more exploited by gaming companies
